Pharmacies in NHS Ayrshire & Arran may decide to open one hour later than advertised, close at lunchtime, and close one hour earlier than advertised, in order to cope with the unprecedented demand they are currently facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
NHS Pharmacy First Scotland is an NHS service provided by your local community pharmacy.
If you have a minor illness, a pharmacy is the first place you should go for advice. You do not usually need an appointment and you can go to any pharmacy.
Your local pharmacist or a trained member of the pharmacy team will give you advice and provide medicine if needed. They may need to refer you to another healthcare professional if they feel your condition needs further investigation or more specialist care.
